Alright, I’ve got some progress to report. First of all, you can now control a character that can walk around. And you can see your own feet if you look down. Yay! Collision with the planet is working, but collision with the blocks is very buggy and broken and doesn’t work at all. I’ve also made a level parser. Basically it parses 6 bitmap files, and each file is a layer for blocks. So I can paint my maps, and the colors represent different block types.

So yes, it looks a lot like minecraft. It’s not gonna be a minecraft game, though. I’m unsure what to make of it, but I’ll decide on that tonight. I could create a survival shooter with nowhere to hide because it’s a planet. Or I could make an RPG-ish game where the good guys and the bad guys are on opposite sides. Or I could do something completely different. I don’t know yet.

Plans for the next few hours are to fix collision, eat food, fix more collision, and think of a game while fixing the collision detection.
